c&c welcome, of course, and thanks in advance!
Not to sound rude, but I'm just not seeing the vision in this one. Kind of cluttered and my eyes wander about the photo.
Agreed. Hard to pick a subject out so its hard to understand the intent...unless that is the intent?
Sorry Andrew, but I have to go with Eric on this one. I see the angle of the branch, and the angle of the car, but not much going on between the two.
I must like higher contrast then everyone else, because it seems I can't leave my fingers off of other kids toys
Looks like a woman to me
Call me blind and uncomprehending, but other than seeing an attractive woman in the foreground, and a guy in the background, I'm missing the connections between the visual elements. Yet it had enough significance to you that you posted it. So what am I missing?
I will try to remember to come back and take this picture apart a bit, to explain what I see in it, and what I think makes it classic "street" but for now I'm going to let it rest and give others a chance to see what they see in it without my blathering.
Thanks everyone, and there is no way an honest opinion given without malice can possibly be rude.
I cannot see anything going anywhere here either.
I see a lot of visual interest. I see good timing, good balance, and repetitive elements all over the shot.
Probably not what Andrew would say, that's just me.
Agree with Designer. Unfortunately the guy for me is somehow not part of the "story".
I don't see anything.
Which brings up a good question. If amolitor brings up some amazing explanation, and we all go "Ohhhhh....", does that mean it's a good picture? Or should the connection be obvious at first glance?
Don't know what Andrew would say. I think we all see it differently.
